                                  Sorry, but his predecessor Saparmurat Niyazov was far more amazing. 

                                  Instead of a gold equestrian statue, he built a monument with on top a golden revolving statue of himself who always faced the sun.

                                  He renamed the names of days and months after national heroes, poets, historical events and family members and, of course, himself and his mother. 

                                  He renamed the word for "bread" after his mother's too.

                                  He wrote a book "Ruhnama" and he named the month of September after it.

                                  The Ruhnama was introduced to Turkmen culture in a gradual but eventually pervasive way. Niyazov first placed copies in the nation's schools and libraries but eventually went as far as to make an exam on its teachings an element of the driving test. It was mandatory to read Ruhnama in schools, universities and governmental organisations. New governmental employees were tested on the book at job interviews.

                                  In March 2006, Niyazov was recorded as saying that he had interceded with God to ensure that any student who read the book three times would automatically get into heaven (Wiki)

                                  Last but not least:
                                  Niyazov introduced the practice of "Melon Day," a harvest festival celebrated on the 2nd Sunday 
                                  of August.

                                  "His Excellency"'s Saparmurat "President for Life" splendour remains IMMO to this day unsurpassed!

                                                  John Oliver really hates strongman dictators unless liberals are kowtowing to them.
